On the final night of the tour promoting the new album Chris, Warren, Billy and Midge will be joined on stage for the encore by the lads from Monument.. Then Robin Simon walks out... then Stevie Shears... and then John Foxx...

...They launch into a 27 minute rendition of Slow Motion with a 10 minute screamier than a screamy thing from screamville synth solo from Billy...

I'm right aren't I!!!

No, it's something much more interesting I'm pleased to say MoTW. And my age, if you look on the forum hard and close enough in the right thread, is pretty well known. So no need for me to try to hide that.

You know, with that suggestion there's an obvious gag 'any sex would be a change' to be made here, and I'm sure they'd be the first to make it. But no, it's not that.

Are Monument themselves about to release some material?!!! Or maybe even take part in some kind of tribute to Mick Karn evening, also featuring Ultravox members past/present?!!

No, it's not that. We have something a bit grander planned for the first of what you've suggested there, and something much more intimate with friends for the second.

@ David L - although as Paul has said, that's not what the little fella's got up his sleeve, the shameless opportunist in me cannot resist pointing out that something similar to what you suggest is already happening! Admittedly it's featuring PF3 as opposed to Monument (we're the other band that played that day) and it's up here in Edinburgh, but it does fall within a week of the anniversary in question and I'm sure Paul won't mind me announcing that he and Pip are planning to be there partly in recognition of that. Details are in the 'Your Music' section for anyone interested!

You are going to do a mini tour of one gig, in the birth place of the greatest Scottish songwriters and if it becomes successful it will become a two gig tour ;o)

I see that the site has been updated to include
a joint Monument/Messengers gig on Saturday April 23rd in Glasgow.

Will be trying my utmost to get back up North for this.

Hi Dave, we had arranged a surprise for that date, but the surprise was on us when the arrangement with the venue fell through. That project has been put on hold for the foreseeable future unfortunately, but we are actively seeking alternate venues and dates to get out and play some gigs before those pesky meddling Ultravox boys come and force us to learn new material for the first time in 20 odd years...

I was in Glasgow last month for forum member "Shirl's" 50th birthday party, it was at Ivory Blacks and Simple Minds tribute band Simple Minded played, there was an 80s night on also, not a bad venue to be honest, I could just see Monument playing there, and as I walked in "Dancing with tears in my eyes" came on! wink

I'm looking forward to a trip to Blackpool later this year to see a band who do excellent covers of Vienna, Sleepwalk & other 80s tracks.

Would love to see them in their native area as I have made quite a few friends in Liverpool/Manchester.

Why is it bands such as Monument & their ilk never venture south?!! There is a venue called The Beck Theatre in Hayes they could quite easily fill. Hmm...might have to contact Beck!!

Actually Ian, it's about 50-50 between Scotland and England. In fact the latest two gigs were in London with the latter being in Camden last September...
Mind you, if the price is right, we're not averse to a trip down again... wink

Ah yeh...sorry Mike I forgot you've played Camden & I saw you at The Grove.

I should clarify....when I say South I mean Southern England as in South of Watford!! biglaugh To me places like Crewe are up north but yeh to you guys that would be south. smile

Funnily enough I've said the same to another band I'm friends with & got the same reply...find the venue & if the price...

I suppose direction is all relative to your starting point... smile

As for the price statement, with the best will in the world we've never made a profit on any of the gigs we've played, especially dahn sarf, so the more we can do to offset costs the better.

Hey, if we broke even or, dare I say it, actually make a negative loss eek , we might play more than once or twice a year... laugh
